Authentic French Colonial 3 bedrooms villa that is over 100 years old, with history value in the heart of Saigon. It is very peaceful stay away from the hustle and noise of the tourist area but walking distance to historical sites, war museum, independence palace, Post office, Ben Thanh Market, Tao Dan Park.
The neighborhood offers the world famous Vietnamese street food, however if you like to cook on your own a fully equipped kitchen is waiting for you.
The location is perfect, quieter than staying at district 1 but it is on the edge of district 1, so just as easy to reach places/restaurants as in district 1, with the benefit of staying in a nice tree lined quiet street.
The house is a big French Colonial style villa with a courtyard surrounded by a few other villas, you get to live like a local.
The kitchen and lounge are spacious with many windows and tropical plants. Your room is typical French villa style, being grand in size (55 sq. m) and has high ceilings with large ensuite bathroom.
The room is big, light and airy but has block out blinds for evening .
